A brand new, Early Years co-educational facility dedicated to 3 to 5 year olds, Taaleem’s Dubai British Foundation offers an “Enriched Early Year Foundation Stage Programme (EYFS)” of the National Curriculum for England (NCfE). As most of you are aware, the National curriculum for England is divided into key stages, with Foundation stage being the first and the most important stage. Preschool or kindergarten is the time when children learn and grow at a very fast pace. They are eager to learn and do things that make them understand and experience the world around them. Dubai British Foundation will be focusing on these crucial years in order to nurture young minds in a safe, creative and stimulating learning environment.
The Nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage framework which supports children’s learning and development from birth to 5 years. The programme offers a rich and varied environment which supports each individual children’s learning and development; after all ‘every child is unique’.
Our marvelous facilities allow us to offer children the ability to access this learning both indoor and in our outdoor spaces. The organization of the environment allows them to independently investigate, explore, create, think and make their own decisions. These opportunities ensure that they develop confidence and a high level of self-esteem which are crucial to a child’s future well being.
Hopscotch Nursery comprises 6 specially designed age appropriate classrooms with the addition of a separate indoor play area, a sleeping room, kitchen for fun cooking activities, a library, a spacious outdoor play area and an activity room. Through EYFS your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development.
